The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Things expected to get rough in Georgia and Alabama tomorrow

Well, last night was yet another indicator that the Dewvoid is alive and real. It seems that people are very safe in my midst, because where I am, severe weather is not. Alabama Mike did a great post on the Southern Weather Brigade team site, which is further proof that the Dewvoid is not just some myth. I was positioned in line with the storm, so that I would have had perfect placement for a good shot at FINALLY seeing some hail yesterday.(Thanks, Mike for the Nexrad screen shots!) You see that road, just north of Remerton, the yellow line feeding into the red line... that's highway 41 and I-75... well, this is what happened...... despite the severe thunderstorm warning, heavy rain, crazily frequent lightning, and green tinged sky, I got nothing... well, I did get 2.6" of rain, which is not good because we are looking at rain all day today and tomorrow, and the river is ALREADY flooding.

7AM EST / 8AM EDT FORECAST
WITHLACOOCHEE RIVER VALDOSTA
FLOOD STAGE: 13' OBSERVED TUE 8PM: 20.3' WED FCST: 19.7' THUR FCST: 19.4' FRI FCST: 19.1' SAT FCST: 18.6'
There was a tornado reported, just to my northeast in Norman Park, GA, and there was some wind damage in the area, and Rick saw pea sized hail. As for tomorrow, we are not just looking at a rain chance, check it out.That's right, moderate risk close to home, I am under a 30% chance of severe weather, just riding the edge of a 45% chance of severe thunderstorms tomorrow.
SVR POTENTIAL TO CARRY OVER INTO MORNING HOURS AND SHIFT EWD ACROSS THIS REGION. LARGE HAIL SHOULD BE MAIN INITIAL THREAT...WITH DAMAGING WIND/TORNADOES BECOMING INCREASINGLY PROBABLE THROUGHOUT DAYLIGHT HOURS AS FOREGOING BOUNDARY AIR MASS DESTABILIZES FROM COMBINATION OF WAA... ACCORDINGLY MODIFIED FCST SOUNDINGS YIELD MLCAPES 2000-3000 J/KG FROM MID-DAY THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON AHEAD OF COLD FRONT. ANY DISCRETE/SUSTAINED STORMS MOVING THROUGH WARM SECTOR...OR INTERACTING WITH BACKED WINDS ALONG WARM FRONT...MAY POSE SIGNIFICANT TORNADO RISK.
Tomorrow (a Thursday, of course!) is a day to watch.

Have a great day!
